History
Bought this car 3 years ago to save it from the previous owner who was slowly ricing it out. Had a fair starting point for mods and was pretty clean over all. This is the 5 or 6th vr4 i have own that i was going to fix up and drive. Sandstone was always one of my unicorn colors so this was the car that was going to get special attention. As anyone that has been here awhile might remember a shop burned me on a 20k+ dollar build so all the work is now done by myself with help from adam bonini who is also a member. This can be slow going but the reward is that much better.

When i first got the car it was set up with greedy 13g and a bunch of random bolt ons and was making roughly 375 awhp. My first winter of ownership saw this happen

On stock motor ended up pushing 485/550 at rays shop on a chrome ecu.

Over the next winter (2015) boostmore hooked me up with a pair of 19ts to try out. So that spawned this thread.

Exact same engine and other major componets. Only major change was i ditched the chrome for an aem series 2

Ended up making 570/585. Could have gone farthe but for a stock block motor thats as hard as i really wanted to push it.

So now over the 2015 winter for the season this year i picked up a set of dnp manifolds and a set of garrett gt3076r td05 turbos and bolted them up

Added a 3s specfic arp gt500 cf wing, retrospec side and front splitters, cleaned up the 20yr old cf hood and resprayed the rear window trim.

This is how the car currently sits. It is in the middle of shake down and tuning. Its currently running at wastegate pressure 10.5 psi durning engine break in before we tune for 28-30 psi. Shooting for 800 to the wheels on this setup.
